True Water Violet people tend to be upright, quiet and dignified. They prefer their own company or that of a few close friends.
We need the remedy when our natural reserve has built a barrier between us and others, leaving us lonely and unable to make contact with those around. Water Violet helps bring us back into balance so that we can be more involved with humanity.
True loners are rare in the horse world, as the horse is a social animal who needs company to survive in the wild. Spotting a Water involves comparing his behaviour against norms for the average horse. Water Violet horses are not shy or fearful like Mimulus horses, but simply prefer to be by themselves more than most, or show a marked preference for being alone with their pair-bond and away from the rest of the herd. The Water Violet remedy helps when horses like this need to get along with the wider world but no longer know how.
Things to look for:
- Horses who are aloof and reject familiarity, but show no sign of fear
- Relative loners who prefer to keep to themselves, or choose their companions with special care
“For those who in health or illness like to be alone. Very quiet people, who move about without noise, speak little, and then gently. Very independent, capable and self-reliant. Almost free of the opinions of others. They are aloof, leave people alone and go their own way. Often clever and talented. Their peace and calmness is a blessing to those around them.” Dr. Edward Bach ~
